Reward: Silver Key + random item.

If you talk to the Bowerstone South school teacher, you'll know that the school lacks educational materials and would gladly appreciate if you could spare some books. Here you have an opportunity to watch some funny cut-scenes as the teacher reads some books to the kids. If you donate 25 books, you'll get a Silver Key. You can also get a random item (piece of clothing) from the kids after donating about 10 books.

OptikSniper. Where and who in the bandit camp is this trader you can buy/sell books to/from? I have played this game on the original Xbox and could not find the one your talking about. Help please? Reply to this post here and to thanks😃!

It would be nice if Lionhead Studios had a better way of managing (a) your inventory and (b) the things you are collecting so you know what you have and don't have (i.e., more like... Diabo 3). Fun game if you can get past all the bugs (including freezes), control issues, clunky menus (Lionhead never figures this out) and other quirks. As for "The Tailor's Tragedy", that was the last book I needed. I thought I had looked all through Bowerstone North. but I ended up finding it in a bookshelf in the only house on the right-hand side coming in from the South. The bookself was on the first floor almost directly across from the entrance, but is angled sideways (against the back of the stairs) so you might not see it as easily. The Tailor's Tragedy was the book I highly suspected I needed. Looking at lists online as well as the duplicate copied I had in my inventory, it was this one or possibly The Tales or Aarkan (found in Oakvale). A video game is supposed to eliminate the need for manual lists, but not this one. I had to figure out and keep track of which silver chests and Demon doors I had opened, and as you see the books I believe I had found or not. And don't worry about the Book of Spells; if the teacher talks about it, it means you don't have any other books he is looking for. There are more than 25 books in the game, but only a specific 25 that he will take. Here are a few useful websites: LIST OF BOOKS NEEDED FOR THE BOOK COLLECTION LIST OF ALL BOOKS & LOCATIONS BOOK COLLECTION & REWARDS [link]

Hi guys i have this problem two but i found a way to get 30 keys WITHOUT DONATING THE BOOKS!!!And here is how ---> if you still haven't get the key from Necropolis the first time you go there it give you a quest,you start the quest go get the key and than go back to Northern Foothills that way the game will tell you that you have a quest and will ask you if you want to reload form the place where the quest started,you click reload and then you go again to Necropolis and get the key again and it will count it AGAIN!!! I found out about this bug by myself i don't know if someone else knows it but it works. PS: I play the game on a PC :)

the ripper 23/08/2010 01:27

chrcoluk 13/12/2008 04:21

Ok here is a tough one. I dont want to know about archealogist hero save trick. I dont want to know which books are evil/good. What I want to know is how to get rid of good books I already have so I can give the teacher evil books, telling me to start the game again and not pick up good books isnt a solution. There must be a way to get rid of books.

OptikkSnipperx 25/10/2008 16:07

Seriously works!!!!! The easiest way to make money in this game even from the very start of the game! Buy as many healing potion, and mana potions as you can from each town, then go to Bowerstone South, sell all the potions, and then buy them all back. Keep doing this over and over once you have more money, I suggest going to all the towns and buying out all the potions, and returning to this guy and selling, and buying all over. You will see that your making more money, once you get to a high income lvl, this gets even cooler..... Start buying as many diamonds, sapphires, jets, etc (for the ruby, you wont get a profit them from selling them in all but one town.) By selliing these precious stones you'll start making hundreds of gold more, then more on to step three start buying agumentations (however it's spelled, but don't put alot of money down on the FLAME AUGMENTATION, BECAUSE YOU WONT GET A PROFIT FROM THIS STONE.) Once you start collecting these and selling them you'll be able to buy more, and further increase your profit as you sell more of them in bulk. I suggest selling them in Hook Coast the snowy region of the map. I was able to make over 5,000 gold in one bulk sell of my agumentations, but make sure to keep collect and buying more of these little guys, so you can bulk sell them in Hook Coast, and then rebuy them back from the trader, repeat this however many times you can bare to and you'll be a millionaire in no time. Shoot you can easily make over 1,000,000 just from step 1 of selling potions and mana potions, but I suggest only selling this 2 main potions, because you will earn a profit from them specifically. Try it is really works. This post was dated Monday, Mar 3rd 2008
